The Mayor of Barcelona wants the State to guarantee Nissan loans

Barcelona's Mayor Jordi Hereu endorsed yesterday that the state guarantee Nissan loans, as had the Catalan minister of Labour, Mar Serna. The Japanese multinational company announced last week that requires the backing of the executive to achieve the money needed to ensure the continuity of the plant in Barcelona beyond 2012, and yesterday the Mayor insisted that the automotive industry is key to Barcelona and Catalonia. As it is, also insisted Hereu, the retail trade, threatened by the European directive that eliminates the restrictions to open malls in Catalonia.
